Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) D Gautam Sawang clarified that drones were used near the former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s residence by the Irrigation Department to monitor the intensity of floods and there was nothing to worry about it.
Sawang pointed out that the drones were flown in the surrounding area of Prakasam Barrage and Naidu’s residence happened to be in the same area. Last week, two men were taken into custody by the Police of Tadepalli for flying a drone over Naidu’s residence in Undavalli and the incident triggered a fear amongst the TDP cadre in the state citing a serious threat to the former CM.
The DGP while addressing media said, “It was a communication gap between local police and Irrigation Development led to the confusion on the ground. There is no conspiracy behind the drone incident on August 16. Officials of the Irrigation Department were doing their duty by recording visuals using a drone camera to estimate the intensity of the flood in Krishna River. As a part of it, a team of drone pilots came near Naidu’s house and TDP leaders raised allegations.” He also added, “There is no issue or controversy here but avoidable political debates have taken place.”
